Content

This unit examines new and emerging surveillance technologies and the impact these have for traditional notions of crime and security problems. Examples include the increasing use of video surveillance, facial recognition software, unmanned drones, smart televisions and mobile webcams. While some of these technologies have been developed as deliberate tools for surveillance, many have been developed for other purposes (such as webcams and smart televisions) but have the result of providing for increasing means of technological surveillance. The unit examines the effects of these technologies in relation to crime and security problems as well as society more broadly.
